NAOIP NJ Office Deal of the Year Award for Unilever Development

NAIOP New Jersey, the commercial real estate development association, has announced the winners at the Thirtieth Annual Commercial Real Estate Awards Gala, on Thursday, May 11, 2017. Together with Cushman & Wakefield, Normandy Real Estate Partners and Unilever, OVG Real Estate won the prize for Office Deal of The Year. 

Managing Director USA Jan-Hein Lakeman received the prize on behalf of Cushman & Wakefield, Normandy Real Estate Partners and Unilever. The prize was awarded for the 700 and 800 Sylvan Avenue Redevelopments at Englewood Cliffs. Following decades of occupancy, changing needs and an evolving sustainability mandate threatened Unilever’s departure from 700 and 800 Sylvan Avenue. In 2016, a series of Cushman & Wakefield-led transactions resulted in redevelopments at both properties, including Project Unify, one of the East Coast’s most energy-efficient and highly advanced corporate facilities.

Other two finalist were Daiichi Sankyo Relocation to 211 Mt. Airy Road, Basking Ridge and Summit Medical Group MD Anderson Cancer Center Built-to-Suit Lease, Florham Park: Summit Medical Group.
